Saudi Aramco’s Q2 net profit plunges 73.4% on lower oil prices

DUBAI: Saudi Arabian state oil group Aramco on Sunday (Aug 9) reported a 73.4 per cent fall in second-quarter net profit, a steeper drop than analysts had expected, hit by lower crude oil prices and declining refining and chemicals margins, as the coronavirus hit demand.

Net profit fell to 24.6 billion riyals (US$6.57 billion) for the quarter to Jun 30 from 92.6 billion riyals a year earlier.
